Intimate Reflections -
Fine Art Male Nudes by JD Dragan

Sam Orwen, Lovers, 1982
Birthright Confronted, by JD Dragan

Opening reception: March 15, 2007 in the evening.

JD Dragan’s silver gelatin photographic prints have exhibited in solo and group exhibitions across the United Sates and viewed around the world. His award winning male nude photographs present non-objectified imagery of the male nude genre depicting exclusively men of color; in an ever expanding umbrella.

His work is in many private and public collections including the Museum of the African Diaspora in San Francisco, the Tom of Finland Foundation in Los Angeles, Leslie-Lohman Art Foundation in New York City and the Center for Fine Art Photography in Colorado.

His images are licensed in a variety of products such as greeting cards, and the 10percent Provocateur line of “Black” calendars. He also has published in several journals including “The Photo Review.”

The Rosa Lila Villa (Pink Lilac Villa) is a house for lesbians and gays in Vienna. It was founded by their own initiative in 1982. The house serves as an open community center and a meeting-place.

Inside the villa is an information and counseling office (ROSATIP/LILATIP). Many different groups with varying needs, hold meetings and activities at the villa. Located on the ground-floor is the "Willendorf" with a bar and restaurant.

MONEY
“…I named what I thought was an enormous sum. Without blinking an eye, he gathered up my life work and handed me the amount I asked for: $70… I didn’t expect more. Remember that homosexuality was forbidden in most of the Western world; so all those businesses were illegal, black market. I knew that they wouldn’t have paid me more anyway — or so I believed then.”
